Rapids Before Fish Ladder
Seen from river level. Class 3-4 depending on water levels. Here, Class 3. At higher levels, the whitewater is longer and the waves are higher, but it always seems to have a decent flow. At lower levels, some large rocks form holes.
Flat Iron crag is partially visible behind; the beginning of the S-Turn rapid is where the water ends in this view.
